Since 1984, Northwest Youth Corps (NYC), a non-profit organization, has given tens of thousands of youth and young adults opportunities to learn, grow, and experience success. Through partnerships with conservation agencies, youth and young adults gain the personal and professional skills needed to carry out a variety of stewardship projects, from which they can earn a stipend, high school credit, and/or an AmeriCorps educational award. More importantly, these young people gain skills needed to become economically and socially self-sufficient, benefit their communities as citizen stewards, and recognize that they can make a positive difference. NYC also operates an accredited charter school, internship program, and the Idaho Conservation Corps (ICC).
The Woods boss is responsible for providing field support to youth and young adult conservation crews. This includes, but is not limited to ensuring projects are to partner and NYC/ICC specifications and NYC/ICC standards, camps are to NYC/ICC standards; that they are clean, safe, and follow organizational protocol; and that seasonal staff presents a rich educational program. This position will also include giving project specific technical support to crews which may include, trail maintenance and construction, fence maintenance and constructions, invasive species removal, and fuels reduction. A Woods boss may also manage some weekends, recreational trips, and be responsible for resupplying crew food and equipment.
